Showers of Blessing . . . why do we expect so little ?

     “Therefore . . . being by the right hand of God exalted (Ephesians 1:18-21), and having received of the Father the promise of the Holy Spirit . . . . He hath shed forth (gushed out as a fountain, poured forth) this, which ye now see and hear . . .

     Then said Peter unto them . . . Repent, and be baptized* (Acts 19:1-8) every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins . . . and ye shall receive the gift* (something given freely out of great love for the receiver) of the Holy Spirit . . .      For the Promise is unto you, and to your children . . . and to all that are afar off (yet in the outer court – Ephesians 2:13-14), even as many as the LORD our God shall call . . . !”     Acts 2:33-39

Quote –      “The church is not now the separate and peculiar people she was when the fires of persecution were kindled against her. How is the gold become dim! how is the most fine gold changed!     I saw that if the church had always retained her peculiar, holy character, the power of the Holy Spirit which was imparted to the disciples would still be with her. The sick would be healed, devils would be rebuked and cast out, and she would be mighty and a terror to her enemies.”   – Early Writings, p.227

note:   the character and righteousness (innocence, holiness and perfection)  of Christ Jesus is freely ours, if we will through surrender and living (active) faith appropriate it as our very own ! Continue reading

A Temple for Our God ?

court-yard-2   “What?  know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit which is in you, which ye have of God . . . and ye are not your own?

     Therefore, glorify God in your body, and in your spirit (mind), which are God’s . . . for you have been purchased from slavery to sin, at an infinite price . . . !” I Corinthians 6:15-20 and ref: I Peter 1:18-19*

     “When Moses was about to build the sanctuary as a dwelling place for God, he was directed to make all things according to the Pattern shown him in the mount . . . .

But Israel had chosen their own ways. They had not builded according to the Pattern; but Christ, the True temple for God’s indwelling, molded every detail of His earthly life in harmony with God’s ideal. He said, “I delight to do Thy will, O My God: yea, Thy law is within My heart.” Psalm 40:8.

     So our characters are to be builded “for an habitation of God through the Spirit.” Ephesians 2:22. And we are to “make all things according to the Pattern,” even Him Who “suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow His steps.” Hebrews 8:5 & 1 Peter 2:21.     – Desire of Ages, p.209 Continue reading

Together – July 2016 White House Mall

     “For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, Whom we have not preached . . .”   II Corinthians 11:4

PLEASE Note:     We are sharing this video for the sole purpose to warn Christians of what the Bible has prophesied will take place just before the soon return of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ . . .

We do not in any way endorse that which is being promoted by the founders of this event . . . Especially after see that the Vatican stands hand and in hand with this movement. Please take time to read prayerfully the Scripture below, as well as the short article at the bottom which reveals Rome’s connection.

     Jesus said . . . “Father, sanctify them (make them holy, righteous) through Thy TRUTH, yea, Thy Word is Truth (verity) . . . that they all might be one, even as We are One !”   John 17:17-21
and ref: 15:1-7 and I John 2:3-6* and I John 3:22 and John 8:29

Let no man deceive you by any means . . . For that day (of Christ’s return) shall not come, except there come a falling away* (apostasy) first, and that man of sin (lawlessness, not subject to Jehovah’s law) be revealed, the son of perdition . . .

Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped (served and obeyed) . . . So that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God. Remember ye not, that when I was yet with you, I told (warned) you of these things ?

For the mystery of iniquity* doth already work (ref: Isaiah 14:12-17 & Ezekiel 28:13-19): only He Who not letteth (holds back) will continue to hold back, until He be taken out of the way . . . . And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit (breath) of His mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of His coming . . .

     Even Him (Christ Jesus), Whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders (ref: Revelation 13:1-18) . . . And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish . . . Because they received not the love of the TRUTH (God’s Word – John 17:17), that they might be saved . . .

     And for this cause . . . God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie. That they all might be damned (condemned) who believed not the TRUTH, but had pleasure in unrighteousness . . . !”
– II Thessalonians 2:3-13 Continue reading

Is “Contemplative Prayer” really Christian ?

A powerful message by a former eastern mystic, whom the Lord Jesus Christ has delivered and saved. This is one of 4 short videos which reveal the present dangers facing our churches across this world, as ancient spiritualism and spiritual formation techniques (such as centering prayer, contemplative prayer, labyrinth walking, spiritual drumming, tai-chi, yoga, mantras, breath prayer and many others) is finding it’s way in among God’s people.

Please share these clips with all that you are able. And pray in faith that the eyes of all may be opened to see the Light and glorious Truth of the Word of the Living God !

Our Lord (Sovereign King) and Saviour Jesus Christ is coming very soon. Let us all be ready to meet Him !

Cleansing of the Temple of the Heart ?

temple 2     “What?  know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit (John 4:24) which is in you . . . which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?”   I Corinthians 6:19-20

     “In the cleansing of the temple, Jesus was announcing His mission as the Messiah, and entering upon His work. That temple, erected for the abode of the divine Presence, was designed to be an object lesson for Israel and for the world. From eternal ages it was God’s purpose that every created being, from the bright and holy seraph to man, should be a temple for the indwelling of the Creator. 
     Because of sin, humanity ceased to be a temple for God. Darkened and defiled by evil, the heart of man no longer revealed the glory of the Divine One. But by the incarnation of the Son of God (His becoming a man), the purpose of Heaven is fulfilled. God dwells in humanity, and through saving grace* (G5485 – the Divine Influence) the heart of man becomes again His temple . . .
